Re: Plus Five

I'll post more of the radio install after I get the dash speaker and
sub.

I installed the fuel filler and tank emissions lines.

Charcoal canister and vents all hooked up.

Re: Plus Five

I also temporarily installed the park brake and center console
frame. The handle is from a 350Z, and the bell-crank and assembly
I made from scratch. It drops thru the floor and will have a grommet
to seal it up.

It will be covered later.

Re: Plus Five

I got the speaker for the dash yesterday.
today was drizzly and cold so I spent a few hours in the shop.

I made a bracket for the speaker, and mounted it temporarily.
It will be covered with black speaker cloth.

I also made a thru the firewall fitting for the windshield washer line.
I'll make a reservoir for the fluid later, and mount it in the engine
compartment.

Re: Plus Five

New Years update,

I don't have any pictures, but made some real progress.

I painted the emissions lines and put new emissions/fuel hose on
the lines and new stainless hose clamps so that is all complete.

I also completed several wiring harness tasks. I completed the Radio,A/C,
cigarette lighter,motorized cowl vent,wipers,headlights,turn signals, horn,
third brake light,backup lights,sport mode, overdrive lockout button, LED dimmer,
high/low beam dimmer, ignition switch, interior dome/courtesy lights,front hood tilt,
power seats,park brake light, cooling fans, engine harness, check engine light, etc.

In fact, I think everything is wired up except the two round gauges.
I'll make a separate harness for those two.

I installed the fuses and so far everything works!

I even bumped the starter a few times....

Re: Plus Five

Just read through your whole thread and I'm blown away by your fab skills and attention to detail. Funny how all those systems that you didn't have a "comfort level" with seemed to get finished up like you had been doing it for years. Looking forward to seeing you finish her up.

Thanks,
I am hoping it won't be an epic fail!

I have plans to have friends stand by with fire extinguishers for the
First start up.

Wiring has me a little nervous.

Hoping for start in February

Re: Plus Five

Ok,
I'm on the road again tonight, and have a question about my
transmission control.

I have the Connect and cruise supermatic transmission controller
and the harness included a wire labeled "brake light".

The instructions read as follows;

2.2.9 Brake light wire
Although not necessary,the wire labeled "brake light" should be
run to a factory brake pedal switch (NC) so the TCC will unlock
When you apply the brakes.

The switch I have has six terminals, some NC and some NO.

Is the tranny looking for a 12 volt + positive or is it looking for
a ground to be supplied to this wire?

Thanks

Re: Plus Five

Thanks Mike,

Just to be clear, cause I know nothing about this, the 12v + that feeds
into the brake switch to power the brake lights is normally open isn't it?
I think it is Orange wire in my AAutowire harness.

I pick up the out put side of that switch....
The tranny would not see a 12v positive till you step on the brakes,
and this 12v + is sent to the brakes lights AND now also the tranny TCC?

Re: Plus Five

Yes normally open switch, would be 12+ in and 12+out to brake lights, and Trans control module.
I havent driven yet either.
I figured if they wanted a normally closed switch they would say that. in instructions.

I agree about the 12v + part, but the instructions on mine said that
part in parenthesis about (NC), so I'm still confused.

For all of the other functions they tell you what the wire is "looking"
for, like the O/drive or shift modes needed a ground signal for example.

Any transmission guys out there?

Thanks for that,
I just looked at it, and I have something similar that has two
more terminals, but works the same.

That's the thing,
You may be right, I just don't know from my instructions.

I'll try to get info from Pace performance, or clinebarger.

I'll keep you posted.
